The project, Fly High Your Math and Science Skills, is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST, Grant# 1614249) program.
This project is designed to enhance learning, excite interest, and motivate middle school students using a flight simulator.
The two components of the fly high project are the annual one-week summer professional development workshop for teachers and one-week summer camp for middle school students.
Professional Development Workshop for Math and Science Teachers
The project aims to introduce math and science middle school teachers to an exciting and innovative teaching approach that will have a significant impact on the performance of their students. During the one-week summer workshop at Tuskegee University, teachers will learn how to implement specially designed math and science modules in their classrooms using the flight simulator. Teachers will receive a stipend and 3 CEU credits for their participation.
Summer Camp for Middle School Students
An annual one-week summer camp for 7th and 8th grade students will be conducted at Tuskegee University. Students will be involved in several activities to strengthen their math and science skills and develop team work. They will have an opportunity to interact with undergraduate math and engineering students, a tour of the various engineering laboratories, and learn about 21st century careers in STEM. The students will also visit the Tuskegee Airman Museum and Morton Field. Participating students will receive a stipend for the week long camp.
